Five years ago i got tested and the test showed that I supossedly have and IQ of 150.
The thing is that I don't see myself as someone smart, yet I really feel isolated from everyone and really really unmotivated, I feel like if i'm not made for this society in wich dumb people succed and smart ones fail everything. Anyone feels the same? If so, what did you do in order to not feel so shitty about yourself?

That's how being smart is supposed to feel. You just accept what other people are telling you and do what you want because you're above them all.

IQ tests aren't really a great display of intelligence they're actually really outdated. Go see how far you can make it in math with it still being ez

> As a kid we had general standardized tests, and subject specific standardized tests, we knew these were coming and could study for them.
>as a kid
Of course everyone can prepare for them, that's why it measures your true ability when even with preparation you cannot score perfectly on these tests. And those hundreds kids scoring perfectly are in the 99.95 percentile.

>I would even argue the opposite, why do standardized tests matter?
Because of the reason I mentioned. Look it up.

>I scored in the 96 or 98th percentile on most of my standards, I remember my parents being all excited about it. But nothing came of it

Did you score in the 98th percentile of SAT ? or just some test you took when you were in 5th grade ? those are different. You can't expect a special treatment because you did well on a 10 y/o's test when you were 10. Your parents shouldn't have been excited unless you score in top 100 USAMO at 10 or sth equivalent

>why do you think school tests don't matter?
You said your school is bad, those tests are too easy.

> A student just going with the flow sitting in geometry like everybody else, but could be in calc 2+ Taking college level math classes in 9th grade would put him at a massive advantage.

Kids take APs all the time, nothing is preventing him from signing up for those classes, online or not, nothing is preventing him from reading books (spivak, rudin. etc.), which is worth more than typical AP courses anyway. But those are necessary and not sufficient conditions to be treated in a special way.

>But no one would know because on paper he just looks like a good student.

everyone would know if he takes SAT, meant for his seniors, and score perfect on his school tests. Almost like you must satisfy actual requirements for college courses before taking them, not how "easy" you find your current class is, shocker! here lies the ego problem of most people who thought they are gifted by some test they took when they were 10.

If you are so smart, why are you posting this same thread again?

These are the kids that find their current class boring and easy and at the same time wouldn't be able to follow any advanced class, when their idea of difficult material is calculus instead of geometry. I guess most "smart" underachieving kids fit this description.
